This is the way the film ends

Blasphemy Alert: They’re giving the film version of August: Osage County a “less downbeat” ending. Curse you, Harvey Weinstein! Is nothing sacred? Can a woman not lament the disintegration of her life, family, and mental stability while the final lines to T.S. Eliot’sThe Hollow Men” are read by her housekeeper? Has America gone soft?

    Well, I guess they have to do it because if anyone knows how stupid movie audiences are, it’s Harvey Weinstein.

    I’ll avoid the film and have good memories of the play. I’m sure I’d leave the movie theater thinking that this high school production I saw in a conservative Mormon town in Arizona was better: http://who-will-kiss-the-pig.blogspot.com/2012/03/thursday-night-in-east-mesa-august.html
